It's not purely about being able to check things, nor about how you define
the word "compiled". You also need to be able to make changes. From
http://www.apache.org/legal/release-policy.html#compiled-packages :

"... All releases are in the form of the source materials needed to make
changes to the software being released. ..."

In the sense that the original source has been passed through a tool that
mangled it into a form that can't be readily modified, it's not source,
even if you don't want to call it "compiled".
